Update regarding final episode: Ditto!
What are they doing with our Merideth??
Last week's episode ended with her "waking up," only to learn that she's dead.
So what do you think? Did they kill her off? On the Grey Writer's blog, Shonda tells us not to put it past her. "I killed Denny," she warns, letting us know that she is certainly capable of shocking us beyond words.
Will they kill her off and keep her on the show by means of voiceovers, such as the technique used on Desperate Housewives?
My guess is no. Maybe in the 5th or 6th season, a la New York Undercover. (Ya'll know NY Undercover didn't play! They'd kill ANYBODY!) But not now; not yet.
Now Dr. Burke on the other hand, if his ass had landed in the water, with all his recent, uh, shenanigans, he woulda been a goner.
